Box Jellyfish

The sea is pregnant with solitary creatures. One of my favorites is the Chironex species. The way it negotiates the currents–fluidly, gracefully–displays an elegance of character. But this animal has more in store than what its minimalistic architecture shows. One can see through its translucent body but can never absolutely predict its behavior. Each thin tentacle can deal a damage more extensive than its reach. Magnificent, unassuming and strange is a box jellyfish.
